[image]The Yucatan Peninsula - Jacques Descloitres, MODIS Land Rapid Response Team, NASA/GSFC
This MODIS true-color image of the Yucatan Peninsula was acquired from data captured on October 6, 2001. The Peninsula is comprised of several Mexican states, including Yucatan in the north, Quintana Roo to the east, and Campeche to the west. Mexico also shares the Yucatan Peninsula with the countries of Belize and Guatamala, located to the south of these states.Phytoplankton show up as blue-green swirls off the western coast of Yucatan, in the center of the image, mixed in with sediment and oth...

[movies]Hurricane Rina Caught on ISS Cameras
External cameras on the International Space Station captured views of Hurricane Rina at 2:39 p.m. EDT on Oct. 25, 2011, as the complex flew 248 miles over the Caribbean Sea east of Belize. The late season hurricane, which continues to intensify, was located 300 miles east-southeast of Chetumal, Mexico, barely moving west-northwest at a glacial three miles an hour. Rina is packing winds of 105 miles an hour, and is forecast to intensify to a major hurricane as it approaches the Yucatan Peninsula...

[image]Fires in Mexico and Central America - Image by Earth Observatory staff, based on data from the NASA-GSFC
On April 21, 2004, the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on the Terra satellite captured this image of southern Mexico and northern Central America showing scattered fire activity across the region. The scene is centered on northern Guatemala, with the southern Mexico state of Chiapas to the left and the country of Belize to the right. At bottom right in the scene is northern Honduras, where smoke appears to have pooled in dips in the mountainous terrain...

[image]Yucatan Peninsula - Jeff Schmaltz
Phytoplankton, mixed in with sediment and other organic matter, show up as blue-green swirls along the coastal margin of the Yucatan Peninsula in this image acquired on February 5, 2006. A very large barrier reef is visible off of the eastern coast of the peninsula, running north and south along the right side of the image. Second only to Australia's Great Barrier Reef in size, it spans 180 miles from the northern tip of the Peninsula south into the Gulf of Honduras, and is home to over 35 diffe...

[image]Hurricane Stan Floods Central America: Natural Hazards - NASA -- NASA Image Of The Day
By standard measures, Stan was a small storm. It formed as a tropical depression on October 1, 2005, and barely reached hurricane status before going ashore in southern Mexico on October 4. In the intervening period, the storm moved over the Yucatan Peninsula, drenching Belize, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, and Mexico with heavy rain. Though the winds never reached more than 130 kilometers per hour (80 miles per hour), the storm proved to be one of the most devastating since Hurricane Mitch ...

This true-color image of Mexico was acquired by the Moderate-resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS), flying aboard NASA's Terra spacecraft. In areal extent, Mexico is the third largest country on the continent of North America (not counting Greenland, which is a province of Denmark), comprised of almost 2 million square kilometers (756,000 square miles) of land. Home to roughly 100 million people, Mexico is second only to the United States in population, making it the world's largest Spani...

[image]Fires in Mexico and Central America: Natural Hazards - NASA -- NASA Image Of The Day
Smoke from widespread fires in tropical Mexico and Central America appears to be drifting over the U.S. Gulf States. In 1998 similar circumstances resulted in air-quality warnings being issued in several U.S. states, including Texas and Louisiana. The top image shows smoke and fires (red pixels) observed by the Moderate-Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) aboard NASA's terra.nasa.gov/ Terra satellite...

[image]Fires and smoke across Southern Mexico - Jacques Descloitres, MODIS Rapid Response Team, NASA/GSFC
On March 1, 2003, the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on the Aqua satellite detected widespread fires (red dots) scattered across Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, Belize (to the southeast), Guatemala (to the southwest), El Salvador (center, west coast), Honduras (center, east coast), Nicaragua, and the northern part of Costa Rica (bottom right). At upper right is the Caribbean Sea, and at lower left is the Pacific Ocean.Fires continued to flare up and die back over the next th...
